    As of late the notifications have not been displaying on my lockscreen. Now once pressing notification setting on the app, the app crashes.

    Has again stopped working properly on HTC M8's, you get no information on the content. Sounds like a Lollipop issue but such a shame, a great app like this no longer works.

    I really love the concept but every time I had the app on Talk back would not turn off no matter how hard I tried. I desperately didn't want to uninstall but it was the only option.

    Submitted a review once regarding notifications stuck on my screen with my Galaxy S4, particularly when the alarm on my phone goes but I can no longer find the review. I'm uninstalling the app today as I am unable to get rid of these now without restarting my phone. Sad to see this hasn't been fixed.
